Hans: 27 years ago I made a printed a large color wall portrait of my wife and daughter. The emulsion was separated from the RC backer and embedded onto canvas. I sprayed the print with a lacquer made by McDonalds, back then. This print was pulled on a stretcher and framed without glass. After 27 years it is just starting to show some color shift. No fading but a slight shift to the blue. Lacquers do protect prints. This was lacquers that we had available 27 years age. Todays liquid laminates have improved tremendously. If you are using spray coats. Look for coatings that contain acrylic. It has more give than lacquer. Lacquer tends to get brittle with age and you end up with microscopic cracks. This allows the outside environment to get to the print. Talk with your museums. Most older oil paintings were finished with a top coating of some kind.
